Overall, I hope they won't change that version of... More

The good thing about Bars Cafe is that it's not too crowded. It's great for a quiet lunch or dinner and the ambience is nice. Inspite of being slap bang in the middle of Duplication Road, its not noisy and very cosy. The food is great, especially the seafood platters. The fruit juice that comes with sugar syrup is great...

I am a regular visitor. All my business lunches and hang out with friends generally end up here as its a no-Brainer to find a decently priced classy restaurant in Colombo. Their nasigoreng is probably one of the - if not thee- best in SL. Their pastas & salads also equally classy. Their desserts are absolutely exquisite. Cozy atmosphere with... More
